Pop cosmonauts Hidden Treasures

"The most blissful opening four tracks in the galaxy.  Choral music from the garage in the jungle - you can hear why the Happy Mondays knelt at the Can alter"

"Allegedly George Clinton recalls nothing of recording; a great shame as this is the 70's equal of Primal Scream's wonderful Screamadelica.  Praise can't come any higher."

"Slave to the Rythm - Maybe German autobahn groove masters most commercial moment - a must for Stereolab technicians"

"Neil Young, Beatles, Stills, Byrds, Love - this is up there with all of them - a stone classic"

"What a shame -Shack's gorgeous debut is not listed here but is so worth the hunt.  Beautiful melodies and melancholy - no wonder they were the house band for Arthur Lee's comeback in the early ninties"

"Camberwell meets France for Velvet Underground fans.  The metronomic beat, those Velvety guitars, the sublime melodies - arguably the 'Labs most consistent effort in a glorious instellar career"
All Back To Mine: Music Inspired By The Television Series

"The most joyful, eclectic compilation I've ever come across - lost treasures abound; this can lead to a universe of wonderful music.  Worth the entrance fee alone for stone gem from Patti Jo"
On the Beach

"Easily Neil Young's lovelist 70's LP.  Inexplicably unavailable in UK.  Buried Treasure indeed."
Kill City
Kill City
"Recorded '75 but released after "The Idiot" & "Lust" this is just pipped into 3rd as Iggy's finest solo moment.  Like Iggy doing the Stones in '71 - a right, royal, rollicking joy and no mistake."
Submarine Bells

"NZ's Dunedins Heavenly Pop music makers delivered the lost pop classic of our lifetimes.  More Mr Sheen than on their  DIY pop singles of the 80's; just a wonderfully segued atmospheric pop wonder."
Daydream Nation

"Seminal.  Still the Youth's finest hour.  Set the controls for dischordant guitar riff heaven."
Choochtown

"Completely compelling - the equal of the Velvet's - the highes praise I can offer."
Selected Ambient Works 1985

"The finest example of an ambient LP in this suspicious genre."
Curtis Live

"The only double live LP to rival the Velvet's 1969.  Warmth, intimacy and your personal front row seat at the gig of a lifetime."

"Cope Germanic influences fly, weird, wired  this just grows and grows and grows."

"Obvious but nothing other than essential.  I've grown up listening to this and never tire of it."
Warehouse Song Stories

"Ramshackle, frazzled guitar pop.  Bob Mould and Grant Hart's dogfight to outdo eachother's songwriting reached its zenith here.  All the Husker's, Mould, Sugar recommended but maybe this is the one."
The La's
The La's
"Maybe the only pop album I've listened to as much as the Beatles.  Sad because they never followed it up.  Lee Maver's is the mose wasted talent of our generation."
Kind Of Blue
Kind Of Blue
"An obvious choice again but just an unbelievablely fine record.  I just didn't get Jazz until I heard this.  I still don't really but this completely marvellous."

"Inexplicably unavailable - a must for Beach Boys devotees and all fan's of soulful, beautiful pop."
